Anita Bacic — Wind/ing
Posted on May 2, 2013
Anita Bacic explores zoetropes, praxinoscopes and flipbooks.
Wind/ing is a result of Anita Bacicʼs research into simple analogue moving image devices and animations, such as zoetropes, praxinoscopes and flipbooks. Bacic combines domestic and industrial references with a mechanism borrowed from these early moving image devices. The work takes the form of six spherical rotating objects inspired by rooftop turbine vents made up of 10 vane, each vane holding a still image. The objects are powered by oscillating household fans, which create animations. The imagery used in the animated objects is drawn from stories and symbols expressed in different cultures via legends and stories. Wind/ing has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
